Put Your Retweets in Overdrive: Su.Pr URL Shortening Services By Stumble Upon

Pack a Punch in your Retweets

Social Networking

I’d like to share my recommended URL Shortener for Twitter.  You may or may not have heard about it.

Twitter is a micro-blogging forum. You can talk to anyone who wants to listen. It’s a quicker way to get people interested in new product offerings, contests, prize giveaways, blog posts and more.

If you’re a work-at-home mom, this is important in order to get the word out on your brand!

Because Twitter limits you to only 140 characters per tweet, posting a link to your website can be troublesome. There are several services, such as bitly.com  or tinyurl.com that let you type in the URL of any site and will then shorten it into a clickable URL that uses fewer characters.

I prefer the new service that Stumble Upon has developed.

It’s called Su.pr

I also recommended that you install the bookmarklet on your toolbar.

Benefits:

* When links are shortened by su.pr, it also adds a StumbleUpon toolbar to the tweet, thereby increasing your chances that your post will get Stumbled (more traffic!)

example:  Click through my RT and see what happens:

New YANKEES MLB Baseball Infant Baby Lovey Blanket Blue http://su.pr/2tl352 #bonanzle <for any Yankees fan!


Actually, we should all try to stumble any tweets we may find interesting. 

  • Simultaneously post to both your Twitter and Facebook accounts
  • There’s also the ability to schedule your tweets through su.pr  I like to schedule my Retweets for optimal traffic-time on twitter and spread them out throughout the day, morning & evening, depending on the tweet and topic.  You also won’t be spamming your followers with so many Retweets all at once.
  • Su.pr adds the ability to track your tweets and see how many click-throughs have occurred.
  • There is also a su.pr WordPress plugin I use – post to twitter immediately with a shortened su.pr link (instead of bit.ly or tinyurl, etc.)

Download the Su.Pr Plugin

This is just a suggestion, it was mentioned on Mashable – but I think it’s definitely one worth using.

Check out more information and tips and suggestions I’ve written for using social networking sites and Twitter to brand your blog or business.

  1. I love su.pr and use it for my shortner it provides you with some great stats. I didn’t know about the plugin I should check that out although I am getting up there with my amount of plugins.

    • I hear ya Danny ~ I understand it’s not to have too many plugins on wp because of conflicts, and I think I’m getting up there too.

      However, I do like this plugin!

  2. Excellent and informative post. Thanks for the tips.

  3. Thanks for the info! I currently use tinyurl and can’t wait to check this out.

  4. I’ve been using Su pr for awhile now but I may decide to switch to another url shortener. Checking the history on su pr.com clearly shows click-throughs and Twitter traffic to blog posts, BUT that same traffic does not show up on Analytics or my favorite Woopra. Strange to say the least, and annoying.
